and marginal rates, and reduce regulation. explain how that would be different from what george w. bush tried to push through. >> let me describe, actually, five things necessary to get this economy going. one, take advantage of our energy resources. particularly, natural gas, but also coal, oil, nuclear, renewables. that's number one. number two, trade. i want to dramatically increase trade and particularly with latin america. number three, take action to get america on track to have a balanced budget. now, those three things, by the way, are things which we have not been doing over the last three years, which are essential to getting this economy going again. number four, we've got to show better training and education opportunities for our current workers and coming workers. and finally, what i call restoring economic freedom. that means keep our taxes as low as possible, have regulations modern and up-to-date. get health care costs down. these things will restore economic freedom. >> so how is it that different from what george w. bush tried to push through? it is not. it is not different
in texas or he worked for many, many years. he helped nurture george w. bush and help him get elected. governor of texas, then was beyond his presidential election as well. he is very, very strong in the texas energy industry, knows many wealthy people there. he is, by all accounts, a terrific fund-raiser. and someone -- wealthy people enjoy talking about politics with him. this is not a science. this is an art. it is a question of personal relationships. karl rove is very skilled and those things. >> what about his relationship with romney? >> they have no long history of friendship or alliance. but karl rove has become basically the embodiment of the establishment of republican party in the same way that romney is sort of the alternative to the tea party, rove is the alternative. rove basically helped push the tea party candidates to one side. he was important in 2010, 2011 criticizing people like michelle bachmann, herman cain, and basically helping us sort out the republican field so that romney could emerge. and this is because karl rove and his allies saw romney as the most elec
fagan, former george w. bush aide and political director. i will tell you two things. 46-46 in gallup among registered voters could be obama's number. 46%. in incumbents are below 50 that could be the number he gets. in other words, a landslide against him. number two, under all the numbers is the economy. that's going to decide the election. that's where the independents are going to break. what do you think? am i right? >> i think you're right. the problem for the president is that this uptick in unemployment is coming at the exact worst time for him. what we see in the numbers, i believe, is that mitt romney is lower than he should be for a couple of reasons. he isn't well known by the public. that will happen at the convention. [ laughter ] >> okay. >> second, he has to put definition on his economic plan. he does those things and the race will break open. >> okay. keith boykin, you're laughing. i love it when you laugh. we love humor on the show. but everybody in the country knows barack obama. if he's still at 46%, what does that tell you, keith? >> first of all, mitt romney has
? yes, okay. when you have a chance of winning, if you are george w. bush, if you are bill clinton, if you are mitt romney, the trick is that you need for percent of the country to love you to get through your primary. the right 40 or the left 40 or the 30% -- the trick is when the primary occurs, when it without doing anything that makes it harder to get to 50. mitt romney was determined to do nothing to move farther to the right and necessary to get the nomination. unlike george w. bush in 2000, bill clinton in 1992, where governor carter in 1976, his challengers were on the right and not in the center. bill clinton did not have to move to the left to be people. george w. bush had challengers. john mccain, on the left of him. deep forbes decided to not be the right-wing menace. mitt romney, unlike many other candidates, which faced far more verlyn challengers sucking up delegates and growth in pockets, none of them could ever win by that. but they all did challenges and there were some weak planning that no one expected. i am certain that nobody expected they would have to come o
that former president george w. bush and form h.w. bush will both miss the convention. they both decided to skip and one cites health reasons. >>> massachusetts is being considered as the keynote speaker at the democratic convention in september. >>> and "newsday" is reporting that the rental apartment that president obama lived in while studying in columbia, new york, in 1981 is up for grabs. the president paid $360 in rent. well, the price now is $2400. yep. >>> and in a speech event someday louisiana's president hugo chavez calls the capitalist elite like mitt romney. he says deep down he's a good guy. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> and now here's your first look at how wall street will kickoff the day. the saw opens as 12,822. the s&p tumbled 13 and the nasdaq plunged 40. >>> taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo the nikkei shot down 161 points while in hong kong the hang seng plummeted 587. >>> so far earning season has been much better than expected but this week reports from three big companies will put the trend to the test. apple reports t
republican colleagues -- stop whining. >>> in "parade" magazine, former president, george w. bush, said he doesn't like the rigidity of the anti-tax pledge, grover norquist has convinced republicans to sign. in a response, norquist, in a "huffington post" interview referenced bush's infamous quote -- read my lips, no new taxes. said people don't like when politicians lie to them. >>> the tampa bay "times" reports that debra wasserman schultz said she is thinking of running for governor in 2014. >>> jill stein will be running against mitt romney again, and president obama for the first time as the 2012 green party presidential candidate. in 2002, stein was one of the candidates running against romney when he was elected massachusetts governor. >>> politico reporting presidential candidate ron paul suffered a big setback at this weekend's nebraska republican convention. he didn't get a plurality of delegate slots, which means paul's name will not be officially nominated at the gop convention in tampa next month. and "newsweek" says former alaska sarah palin with no role at the upcoming repub
conservative. the distinction is all-important. as witnessed buckley's description of george w. bush. "he is conservative, buckley told an interviewer, but he is not a conservative." in other words, he didn't get it. in recent years, there have emerged or re-emerged folks that we call paleoconservatives, national defense conservatives, social and religious conservatives, constitutional conservatives, big government conservatives, and neoconservatives. all trying and fighting for the right to redefine and lead the movement buckley called into being. reminding one of the time that al gore campaigning in milwaukee mistranslated e pluribus unum as out of one many. a few years ago, at the conservative political action conference that mallory mentioned earlier, we honored bill's brother jim and former minnesota senator eugene mccarthy for their 1947 challenge to that era's campaign finance reform. in responding to the toasts, the liberal gene mccarthy stood up and said, you conservatives have had a good run but you are in trouble. because i keep hearing talk of hyphenated conservatives. that's
with a story that i had told him about shortly after george h. w. bush was elected president, his brother called me and said that he was going to run against lowell weicker in the primary in connecticut. that actually the families had lived next door to each other and the kids didn't get along which was the real reason. but he said i need your help because we conservatives have to stick together. and i said prescott, you are not a conservative. you have never been a conservative and you will never be one. if you want my help because i don't like lowell weicker, that's one thing but don't try that one. he said no, you don't understand. now that reagan's been elected we're all conservatives. and that's what i'm talking about because it was more a little thing than a philosophical thing. and a movement of ideas, i mean, this doesn't just take place among conservatives. think of the communist world. by the time the soviet union collapsed, the communist party was like the rotary club, more dangerous than the rotary club, but to find -- you would have been hard pressed to find a communiist in t
and 1972. [laughter] >> yes. okay. when you have the chance of winning if you're george w. bush , if you're bill clinton, if your mitt romney, the trick is you need 40 percent of the country to lead you to get through your primary. the right 40 or the left 40 or the 30%. the trick is when the primary without doing things that make it harder to get to 50. mitt romney was determined to do nothing to move farther than the right and necessary. unlike george w. bush in 2000 bill clinton in 1992 or governor carter in 1996, his challengers were on the right not in the center. bill clinton did not have to move to left to be people. george w. bush had challengers. john mccain on the left of him. steve forbes decided to be haven not be the right wing minutes he had been. so mitt romney, unlike many other kennett's was faced with far more virulent challenges sucking out delegates in the votes and pockets. none of them could never win. they all did things that probably -- i'm not sure, but i suspect there was some week planning that nobody expected. i'm certain nobody expected it would have to come
rights, were not a fan of george w. bush. there was the war, two wars, several other issues, to say the least, but you're watching, you write in your book you're watching the state of the union address, you lived in the states on and off, you've had a home in atlanta, you're watching the 2003 state of the union address. tell me about your reactions to watching george w. bush announcing the billions of dollars that he was going to ask for to be appropriated for global aids. >> i remember jumping up and punching the air but also, at the same time, feeling that i swallowed a boiled egg. i couldn't believe it. it was just a wonderful, again, a pivotal turning point in the treatment of aids people throughout the world. and when i got my kennedy center honor and spent some time with him and rumsfeld and condoleezza rice and colin powell backstage at the interval of the concert, we had a wonderful ten minutes of conversation. he was very informed about aids. i wasn't on the same political, you know, page as him. i didn't agree with a lot of his policies. but he impressed me greatly. >> in
of the republican party, former president george w. bush, will not be attending the republican contention next month. he will not be speaking there. he said he prefers to stay out of politics. but stepping into the public eye today was his wife, former first lady laura bush, in washington, d.c. she was attending an international aids conference, and abc's jon karl had a chance to sit down for an exclusive interview with her. >> reporter: i was surprised to see that neither you nor president bush are going to the republican convention. >> that's right. >> reporter: why is that? >> well, both bushes are not going. george's dad played the age card. >> reporter: it's a little easier for him. >> but we just felt like we, you know, we'll say, we'll be watching from the sidelines. >> reporter: but she's not afraid to take on republicans who want to cut foreign aid. >> it's in our moral interest as a country, the wealthiest country in the world, and we still are the wealthiest country in the world, to help other people, if we can. >> reporter: as president, her husband launched a $15 billion effort to fight

of george w. bush. barack obama replaced it with a bust of martin luther king, jr. jesus mitt romney where does your loyalty lie? yeah let's put mlk in the back of the bus and put winston churchill right up front. god, romney. and then he gives this interview with brian williams where he asks do you think the brits are off to pulling off the olympics. >> do they look ready to your experienced eye. >> it's hard to know just how well it will turn out. there were a few things disconcerting about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials -- >> oh, this is great. this is great. go to england and dump all over the brits. go there for the olympics and say it looks like it is going to be a total bust. it's hard to say how it will turn out. he didn't make any friends among the brits. >> if you go through all of his mistakes yesterday he is george w. bush. >> no, bush was smooth compared to romney. so i tell you the prime minister really shot back at romney. and basically said you yahoo, what do you know. it's
than george w. bush. >> no. they were avoiding bush, but now he's embracing bush. but i guess when you get in trouble in england you have to do what you have to do. >> it's better than insulting an entire nation. >> you can understand this. because i think the best advice came from e.j. deon. he wrote in his column that the next phase of romney's foreign trip, he says sure he may get better press on the latter parts of the trip -- later parts of the trip. perhaps he'll score some political points in poland and israel. but on the whole and this is what i agree, i think romney will want to stay away from foreign policy. the more we talk about it, the better obama will do. one of the first laws of politics is the thing that your opponent is strong in, keep it off the table. >> try to turn it into a weakness. but you can't turn obama's foreign policy into a weakness. this is the first time in a long time i can remember that a democrat is super strong on foreign policy. that's something he can hold up as a trophy. this i did well. so romney stuck with let's keep it about jobs and economy. i
are occasionally necessary. >> eliot: kind of how george w. bush reacted to the meltdown in '08, a blank look as if i should i take note. >> an anomaly but not paying attention. >> eliot: matt taibbi, thank you as always for your time. steven colbert can make mitt romney's trip to israel as successful as his trip to england. view finder up next. rupert murdoch's phone-hacking scan l. admitted that that look, we were able to keep a lot of the folks because of the stimulus. >> bill: absolutely. again, do you great work, judd. thank you. all of your colleagues at think progress. we'll see you again next [ male announcer ] the inventors of twix had a falling out, so the production of twix was divided between two separate factories. left twix factory cascades caramel and chocolate onto cookie, while right twix factory flows caramel and chocolate onto cookie. today they share nothing but a wrapper and a driveway. try both and pick a side. i can't stand these spots. those spots are actually leftover food and detergent residue that can rede
of mitt romney. and they will put him in the pocket with george w. bush. >> right. >> and, you know, that's not where you want to be. >> certainly not. and there has been recent focus surrounding mitt romney, and joe, i think it is fair to say that this is a repeat. round three of the bush presidency. and the foreign policy is stock full of neo-cons who will take us back and fight wars here and there. where is the sense of new vision? >> there doesn't necessarily have to be. romney is running a campaign that is very much stealth, talking about issues in a vague kind of way. as governor of massachusetts he doesn't necessarily have a whole lot of experience, so he brings back in some old hands from the bush administration which had a wonderful foreign policy -- being sarcastic there. >> oh, yeah. >> you are talk about john bolton who famously talking about lopping off the top floors of the united nations, and kofer black who is one of the top haunches of the cia before september 11th. and he was also vp of black water. if that's your all-star team then you have serio
was having a george w. bush flashback with mitt romney, a string of gaffes and bluster and all of this stuff. from the bush administration. >> it is true. when you look at his foreign policy advisers, 17 of the 24 who are listed on his campaign site were bush officials. and a lot of his rhetoric, when he does lay out a position is sort of harking back to the policies that we saw and i think in many cases failed in the bush administration. >> stephanie: the bush years we all remember so warmly. michele, thank you for your time this morning. hope to talk to you again as the campaign rolls along. there she goes, michele flournoy >> he criticized islamic countries for voting in islamic leaders. >> stephanie: how dare they. >> mormon elders? >> stephanie: wow! is there anyone he hasn't pissed off this week? [ applause ] >> comparing the -- the gdp between israel and palestine. palestine is being occupied by israel. >> stephanie: all right. more stinky poor people to him. okay. 58 minutes after the hour. right back
's right. but george w. bush should have gone in his first term too and he did not. he's making the mistake his predecessor made. it's a valid criticism. the president of either party needs to go to israel, support israel. >> there's pictures when he was there in 2008 as a candidate. but as president, mary, he went to egypt, turkey, a whole bunch of other countries. >> but bush was not anti-israel even though he didn't go his first term. president obama has been very strongly supportive of israel as president and he will be if and when he gets a second term. that's the most important. >> that's not the reflection or the opinion of those who know the most about israel. they do not think he's been strong on israel. and i'd like to remind everybody what's happening in the first term -- >> i will say as someone who studied the u.s.-israeli relationship for a long, long time on a military to military relationship to intelligence is very strong right now between the united states and israel. there may be some personal irritation between netanyahu and president obama, but on a substantiative issue
to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should galavant the world and spent billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to track that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and maybe making -- his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign- policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement was -- had very strong bipartisan support
out in 2000 and 2004, i think george w. bush in 2000, would -- early in the campaign it seems to me, i remember him going to one inner city stop after another inner city stop and we were all scratching our heads why are they doing it, they weren't doing it to win votes in the inner city, they were doing it to win votes in the philadelphia suburbs. >> because in the philadelphia suburbs they like a compassionate conservative which mitt romney has proved he's not this campaign. >> has he proven that? >> those primaries, i -- i think did it. but on the theory that 90% of life is showing up, it was a good thing to go. a good thing he went. he had the opportunity to show the nonindependent voter that he wasn't going to go all wobbly. the people he's still going to protect are people like him. and he -- right there in the lion's den he said i'm not going to protect you. >> jon meacham, you talked about historical trends, we both talked about how this duopoly of parties that's been around for 150 years is sure to crack, for a lot of younger americans it may be hard to believe, but african-ame
insular campaign. one of the problems mitt romney has is very much like what george w. bush had, which is a great deal of loyalty to his staff. and doesn't necessarily cut strings when it's time. i'm concerned about eric fehrnstrom and he gave the etch-a-sketch remark and internally romney people seem to be saying they're upset with him for doing that. at the same time, though, the president up until the supreme court gave him a win last week had a significant series of bad weeks. polling isn't going well in the battle grounds. even cnn has him behind mitt romney in battle grounds. and no one wants to talk about should barack obama's team do this. i don't know if it's fair to talk about mitt romney's team when they're neck and neck in the polls and he hadn't done anything wrong in the past few weeks. >> right. and this is a campaign being run out of massachusetts so there are a lot of consultants wanting in. but to change your campaign at this point would be so destabilizing and demoralizing. you want to reach out and grow your campaign is what i think i'm hearing eric say. but when yo
count out and hurt your campaign. and it happened obviously with george w. bush in 2000 on the eve of that election in 2000, a close race it was revealed that he had been arrested for drunk driving, convicted 24 years earlier. and it became a problem. mitt romney, they've done this with mitt romney. not that there is anything of a criminal nature in his background. he made the decision he is not going to reveal. i mean nobody has ever run for president with a swiss bank account. i mean steve forbes did but-- . >> woodruff: but again you're referring to the tax return. >> ed tax returns, i just think it's all of a piece and i just think it's a problem. mitt romney should not be on the defensive, he's on its defensive. >> the response on bain in particular is easy but it's not politically popular, which is bain invested in companies that added jobs and expanded, invested in companies that reduced labor costs, by outsourcing, both domestic and international and invested in companies that closed and fired a lot of people. you know, that if you are disturbed by that, are you disturbed b
reeling and we are today still reeling from devastation of eight years of george w. bush. we were on a brink of a depression and so he felt the timing wasn't right. by the way, whether the n is 250 or 500 or 750 or a million, the republicans are saying no tax increases for anybody. and so the process is in the negotiation process. we're saying 250. the republicans are saying 2 billion. so, you know, this process of saying that there would be no negotiation on any tax increase -- president obama said for every dollar of tax increase, he would grate to ten dollars of budget cuts, no deal. the republicans are sticking their heads in the sand hoping upon hope this line that congressman said that we're going to kill the job creators -- >> jamie: let me ask you this -- >> is holding them hostage. >> jamie: dick, let me ask think and bob, please respond. what is the resolution, then, if you don't -- as democrats continue to push for this, we've stated it in terms of tax cuts and tax benefits, what's the resolution that you could see that could actually pass and help the folks of america,
george w. bush, also served as the u.s. trade rep, served in the house of representatives as well. knows his way around washington. i think he would be a great asset for governor romney. >> greta: thanks you. >> thank you. >> governor mitt romney's world tour. how is he doing on the world stage? john bolton goes "on the record" next. karl rove is here. president obama and governor romney are running neck and neck. what will be more important isn't candidate's likeability or the ability to manage the economy? that's a tough question. karl rove answers that and much more. and it's the story of the three bears that you have never seen. what happened to these cubs? and how did they get out of a big jam? it's all caught on camera. [ femr kids are getting a dependable clean in the bathroom? [ gasps ] think again. try charmin ultra strong for a clean with few pieces left behind. its diamondweave texture is soft and more durable so it holds up better for a more dependable clean. fewer pieces left behind. charmin ultra strong. every communications provider is different but centurylink is committe
, you say who came up with this. >> i heard yesterday george w. bush said he retroactively resigned before the iraq war started. >> their campaign has given us the etch-a-sketch. talk about message discipline, this is not a campaign. you know another thing that occurs to me campaign that is run so poorly, you begin to wonder whether the guys managerial skills, the only thick he is running on, really exist. >> what is amazing, they have narrowed his whole appeal to bain capital. right? his experiences at bain. not governor of massachusetts. >> that's right. >> not his leadership of the olympics. it's all about bain capital. >> right. >> they sort of, you know built their own nest here. >> the reason they can't talk about his tenure as governor is he actually did something good as far as health care with an individual mandate. in the world of the republican party, that's become anathema. one thing he may have talked about substantively is off the table. >> with an individual mandate and a responsibility penalty if you don't buy it or whatever they
